    You should probably watch some youtube videos and practice. What are you using, controllers or turntables?

    Make sure to pick something that you haven't heard too much on DMC videos or at competitions. Showing that individuality is always good. I can't really propose a song, but try something original. Normally good routines take huge amounts of practice to even get the basics of them laid out and even more time to perfect them.

    Use as many techniques as you can throw at 'em, but in a good styled fashion.

    Just go crate digging.

    I would say do what your stronger at. But you can't just beat juggle alone or scratch alone. Find good instrumentals that allow you to beat juggle on the down beat and of course good samples to scratch on. I used to transform on a godzilla sample way back in the day. I love the instrumental of "Uptempo" by RUN DMC which is on the b side of "It's Tricky" or "122 BPM" by Jive Rythm Trax
